Except in the minds of Christians who believe the church must be under siege to flourish (there seem to be more of them than you’d think), there is no war on Christmas.
Saying “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” is not waging a “war on Christmas”. We don’t need to put Christ back in Christmas–he was, is, and will always be there.
I was in an auto repair shop a week ago, getting my mandatory annual state safety inspection on my car. It was a busy day for them, and there were a lot of us in the waiting room. I had a charming conversation with a few other customers, and when one gentleman’s car was ready and he left, I wished him “happy holidays” (I make no assumption about which holiday–or holidays–anyone celebrates). He snapped at me, “It’s MERRY CHRISTMAS.”
Why ruin a nice conversation by doing that? Why tell someone that their expression of goodwill is unwelcome?
When someone wishes you a happy whatever, even (or perhaps especially) if it is not your whatever, that person is basically saying, “Celebrate with me. Come to my party.” They’re welcoming you into their traditions, making you a part of their tribe–even if only for a moment in offering you their good wishes.
Now, what would Jesus do?
Probably ask if he could bring some wine. . .
It’s an invitation, not an insult!
